Welcome! The archive is the next best thing to having been there, which was of course, beyond description.

I've already seen many worthy Top 10's listed here but i'll offer up just one and I promise you won't be disappointed: 10-29-77, Dekalb, Illinois.

A perfect show all the way through w/incredibly high energy and stand-outs that include my all time favorite JACK STRAW, SUGAR MAGNOLIA (Mickey & Billy go temporarily insane), EYES OF THE WORLD (jazzy, groovy & hot all at the same time), ST. STEPHEN (Jerry almost makes it a blues number) & MIGHT AS WELL (when Jerry sings "Never had such a good time/In my Life before!" you'll automatically smile.

This show is worth a million downloads but you only have to do it once!
